There hasn't been a 'Bonspiel' grand curling match on Loch Leven since 1959. Could 2010 be a year for another historic event? It probably needs another week of good sub zero temperatures to be safe.

The ice apeared to be about 3" thick and felt very solid (please be extremely careful on frozen ponds and lakes, they can be, and are, lethal)

Great shots. When Scotland hits the cold jackpot, no where nicer. Enjoy, much better than those damp SWly pumping low cloud and mild weather into the Highlands. Please send some of that snowfall over to Austria !!! running short here at the moment after the "fohn Christmas "

I think there was a Bonspiel in '63 but it was played on the Lake of Montieth. Also held there in '79

Yep, we've done well this year. Away from the coast there's 6" - 8" of snow. Probably best descibed as 1" of powder on a firm to icy base. Probably a lot more up in the Highlands but we just went for a wee run since the back roads are pretty gruesome where they've not been treated.
